The Grand Prix Images Vevey 2021/2022 reveals an exceptional jury
More than 900 projects from 65 countries have been submitted to the Grand Prix Images Vevey: the winning projects will be selected by an international jury chaired by Nigerian-American photographer, critic and writer Teju Cole.
A pre-jury of 17 international experts drew up a list of 80 final nominees selected from the 906 submissions received from 65 countries: 45 projects have been selected for the Grand Prix Images Vevey, worth CHF 40,000 to produce an original photographic project in one year, while 35 publication projects have been selected for the Images Vevey Book Award, worth CHF 10,000 to produce a photobook.
TEJU COLE, Photographer, curator and writer (USA/NGA), will chair the Jury of the Grand Prix Images Vevey 2021/2022, which comprises the following international experts:
FEDERICA ANGELUCCI, Director, Stevenson Gallery (Cape Town – ZA)
MILENA CARSTENS, Director of Photography, ZEITmagazin (Berlin – DE)
JULIEN GUERRIER, Publications Director, Louis Vuitton (Paris – FR)
SHOAIR MAVLIAN, Director, Photoworks (London – UK)
This Jury will meet online from 7 to 9 May 2021 to examine the projects nominated for the final phase of the Grand Prix Images Vevey and the Images Vevey Book Award. At the end of these discussions, nearly CHF 70,000 in creative grants and distinctions will be awarded, as well as the possibility of exhibiting at the next Festival Images Vevey in September 2022.
For the first time since its creation, the organisation of the Grand Prix Images Vevey Jury will take place by videoconference due to the pandemic. Despite this constraint and other difficulties arising from the pandemic, Images Vevey considers it is more essential than ever to maintain its various creative grants, in view of the precariousness of artistic creation throughout the world.
The winning projects will be announced on Tuesday May 11, 2021!
